The trailer of the upcoming second season of ZEE5’s popular newsroom drama, The Broken News, is here. Starring Sonali Bendre, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Shriya Pilgaonkar, the upcoming season is set to premiere on the platform on May 3.

The trailer shows Awaz Bharti’s Radha Bhargava (Shriya) lock horns with Josh 24x7’s Dipankar Sanyal (Jaideep) in the most intense fashion yet, as idealism vows to break the claws of sensationalism. Radha returns to the forefront, after being jailed thanks to Dipankar, to seek vengeance by destroying Dipankar’s brand of journalism.

“Recognizing that unbiased news reporting alone cannot combat Josh 24x7’s propaganda, she is prepared to engage in unorthodox methods to purge the corrupt system. In Radha’s absence, Ameena (Sonali) shoulders the responsibility of fighting the ‘Sach’ battle alone, venturing into the streets to uncover the truth amidst personal risk. Dipankar’s brand of ‘sansani’ news dominates TRPs but he is compelled to utilize his ‘sansani’ ideology to sway public opinion and further his personal and corporate agendas. However, the pertinent question remains the same: Breaking news ki race mein ab break hoga har rule! Jab sach bhi bane sansani, kya Dekhaga India? “ reads the plotline from ZEE5.

Based on BBC Studios’ television drama series, Press, The Broken News is directed by Vinay Waikul and written by Sambit Mishra. Actors such as Faisal Rashid, Indraneil Sengupta, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, and Taaruk Raina are set to return for the upcoming season, while Akshay Oberoi, Suchitra Pillai and Geetika Vidya Ohlyan are the new entrants this season.

The show is produced by ZEE5 in collaboration with BBC Studios India.
